2. Cordy Glenn, T
Now, there is a chance that the Los Angeles Rams might not even have to trade for Cordy Glenn. It appears that the Bengals are already determined to move on from Glenn, which could lead to the team outright releasing the former second-round pick (h/t Pro Football Talk).

Glenn is in the last year of his contract and is set to make $9.5 million so the Bengals could cut him without carrying any dead cap this season. The team is already moving towards a new offensive line without Glenn, so paying him this season is pointless for the small-market Bengals.
It would make sense for the Rams to simply wait it out and sign Glenn to a contract with a smaller salary but by simply waiting out, the Rams would be leaving the door open for another team to either trade for Glenn or work out a contract with the tackle.
Glenn is not a phenomenal tackle but he absolutely is a viable starting option and could at least serve as a one-year bridge-gap option to help the Rams build up the offensive line over multiple offseasons.
The salary situation would be similar to Dunlap’s but the Rams could afford it and the team would only need to trade one future seventh-round pick for Glenn, which is essentially nothing.
Outside of Dunlap and Glenn, there really are not any viable trade targets on the Bengals. Any young talent they have they need to hold onto and the other veteran options have too poor of contracts.
